1979 MG B
1.8L OHV 4-Cyl Upgraded to 2 Bbl
Rare Electric Overdrive
STK 2935 1979 MGB
This classic 1979 MGB will put a smile on your face. In many ways, this model remains true to the iconic 1962 version that replaced the MGA – lightweight, responsive and sporty. However, over the years, the 'B' became more refined. This sporty roadster received an older partial restoration. The body earned a nice re-spray of Leyland White and the black convertible top is in very good condition. Factory steel wheels w/Hercules-Ironman radials and a chrome luggage rack provide great accents. The black vinyl interior has been refreshed - seats, dash, carpeting and door cards are all in very 'good nick'. The well-designed dash holds a full set of factory gauges and an AM/FM/CD Sony stereo system (currently inopt). The 1.8L OHV 4-cylinder has been upgraded with a 2-barrel downdraft carb/intake conversion kit (believed to be Weber) and also appears to have the free-flowing exhaust header system that was standard equipment on earlier pre-emissions MGB models. The 4-speed manual transmission shifts smoothly through synchronized gears. A rare electric overdrive (factory option) supplements the transmission and is perfect for highway cruising. Suspension is stock and brakes are manual disc/drum units. This is a well-maintained MGB that is full of life. As of right now, this “B” needs only a new driver - why not you? ALL VEHICLES SOLD “AS IS”.
